Caviar Manicure by Ciaté

Nail trends over the past few years have been crazy. Long gone are the days of a simple french mani and pedi. While browsing I came across a post about the new DIY Caviar Manicure by Ciaté. I am still a little unsure about whether I will partake in this trend, which will soon be available at Sephora. What do you think?

I love the little bottle of joy that came in my Birchbox this month. The new Essie Luxeffects collection is gorgeous! 

I am usually not one for flashy nail colors... I like soft pinks, nudes, and dark blues and blacks. Yea, I'm pretty boring when it comes to nails... But surprisingly this glittery polish looked amazing on. AND, if you're like me and aren't really that great at giving yourself the perfect manicure, this polish allows some room for (minor) error. Unlike regular polish, it doesn't have to go on perfectly to resemble a salon manicure. 

The color I'm sporting now is the "a cut above" shade (shattered pink diamond glitz).
